«Game, set and match»

My job is like tennis: ability alone is not enough; you also have to be ambitious and sharp-witted. I can’t just press on with my usual style. Instead, I have to adapt to the situation, grasp a problem quickly, and respond creatively. I particularly enjoy working in an advisory capacity as I can act preventatively, often helping to settle disputes before they reach court.

Working with companies of different sizes and from various sectors gives me an insight into modern sales structures which never fails to fascinate me. I feel very much at home in franchising, agency and licensing law. This stems from the fact that I have witnessed the challenges of these business concepts ever since I was a child observing my father, who progressed my grandfather’s business idea with international partners.

Fair play is important to me not just as a long-time tennis player, but in my professional environment, too. As an attorney-at-law, I consciously look not only for spectacular shots, but also for pragmatic solutions.
